polvoron cupcakes

Polvoron cupcakes. These are another of my food finds at the food fair. Polvorons are actually a favorite treat, snack or dessert in the Philippines. They are made of toasted flour, powdered milk, melted butter and sugar, molded then wrapped in colored cellophanes. Nowadays, for variation and flavor, nuts like cashew, pili, peanuts are added, thus they are now available in different flavors.

The hello kitty polvoron cupcake is my daughter’s favorite. ย Now, who wouldn’t want the cutesy pink kitty.

My eyes feasted with all the wonderful creations and colors but i opted to buy the classic polvoron, no fuss, nothing fancy, just the right taste that i love and familiar with… nutty, buttery, milky goodness. This reminds me of my childhood memory wherein my mother would make our own polvoron, helping her to wrap each goodie using japanese paper (papel de japon) and the challenge was finishing the wrapping without breaking or cracking it. Oh, that was fun. But the most fun part of it all was eating it.
